Philosophies and Experiences

 Description To reflect on your own philosophies and experiences related to guidance and discipline, use the questions to guide your original response. Think about the approach your parents used for child rearing. What were the characteristics you think they valued most? How did those values influence your childhood? Do the choices you make match those of your parents, or are they different? How would you rate yourself on a continuum from heteronomy to autonomy? How does this rating reflect your discipline approaches and the approaches of your parents and your teachers? If you are heteronomous, how can you help children become autonomous?
